We have coax run to a number or rooms, and are planning on renting the house out. We want the tenants to be able to choose to have skytv without having to get the tech to get in the ceiling etc.

Currently the leads from the sky dish and the UHF aerial terminate in the ceiling where the preferred signal source is connected to the multiplexer (manually changed by me at present).

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas about how I could use a switch for this instead, the only idea I have is extend both aerial runs to my patch panel, along with the house runs (with the inherent joins for the new lengths).

Can anyone tell me if there are there switches which can be used with this, or alternatively is there any way to combine signals from a satellite and UHF feeds?

You could use a diplexer to put UHF and Sat on the same cable. There will be a bit of signal loss though.

So you'd combine the signals with that piece, split the merged signal to X number of rooms, run one cable to each room, use another one of those to de-merge the signal and then have two aerial connectors on the wall? I might do this for my house, thanks for the link!

I would welcome an alternative e-tailer with a better price...
